Maury and Dog,
     You'll look for Perseids and will probably see  some UFO's also.  Bet 
you and Dog could make some pretty good UFO orbs or  foo fighters using a 
Helicopter drone and some bright lights attached to  it.  Enjoy the 
     Joe Preisig
PS  big meteor fragments can be worth serious $$$$.

Thanks,  Dan, for passing on that account.  What a grand experience that 
would  be to see the shower and then apparently find some fragments from  
it!  I'm just hoping to catch sight of a fireball when I'm out  watching 
for the  Shower.
